I love plantains. I love them with rice and beans, in soups, as a dessert, and as a chip. The brown and yellow ones are sweet when they’re sauted in a pan. The less ripe green ones are perfect for plantain chips. In New York, you can find plantains almost anywhere. I’ve seen them everywhere from Whole Foods to the Korean deli across the street. There’s nothing like remembering good times than with food. I’m also a huge fan of theme nights. This past Friday night, I made a Caribbean themed happy hour to remember our trips to the Caribbean. I made plantain chips to accompany Dark and Stormy cocktails. I decided to bake the plantain chips to be healthier. The end result was a perfectly crunchy snack. We sat back enjoyed our cocktails and reminisced on good times.
